July 2013 - SA - BP Aust - Largs North Terminal upgrade

BP Australia are constructing 2 additional 30 million litre storage tanks at its Largs North Terminal to meet the growing demand of South Australia’s mining and transport markets. The $20,000,000 project was awarded to Baulderstone who have engaged ICE Engineering & Construction as their Electrical & Instrumentation installation contractor. This project will be completed prior to Christmas and provide a challenge to the team as the terminal is classified as a Hazardous Area and will operate 24/7 during the construction phase. We are excited to be involved with this project as it allows us to utilise our hydrocarbons experience on a metropolitan site.
